My friend Mary called today and said I had to run over to see the Monarchs. She said bring your camera! Mary leads the butterfly group here in our town that I've shared with you before. Mary has dedicated her entire backyard to butterfly plants and habitat that provide just what these special creatures need.
Imagine my delight when I got there and realized the butterflies were migrating with a stop right here in her yard! There were possibly a hundred butterflies right there with us.
Mary's feels that God called her to do something to help these creatures.
Monarchs and other butterflies are losing their migration stopping places where they used to find lots of milkweed and other host plants. Development and use of herbicides is causing their food sources to disappear.
If you've ever wondered what you could do to help the world...
plant things that pollinators love and invite them into your yard by
refusing to use herbicides and pesticides.
This Monarch Migration was truly a miracle to behold.
I'm so glad Mary called today. :)
